Williamsburg is brimming with cookie cutter chain hotels and this Best Western is a good choice among them.
We stayed there for 4 nights while we visited Busch Gardens and Colonial Willamsburg. Our room was clean and updated and despite being on the first floor, was not particularly noisy. People at the front desk were efficient and friendly and just a tad stretched thin. Public spaces were also clean and well maintained.
A few cons, however. We were unable to access the wireless service which must be an ongoing issue as they give you the number for tech support when they give you the password. As a result, I used the computer in the business center. A few days later I noticed my email had been hacked...this was the only public computer I was on. While I can't say for sure there was malware on the computer quietly collecting log in info, it sure seems like more than a coincidence.
For those interested in exercise rooms/workout equipment, you should also look elsewhere. Both treadmills were broken, the exercise bike's seat was falling off, and the stair stepper squeaked terribly. Probably not a big concern for most guests. You're going to spend the days walking anyway.
Didn't use the pool at all as it was always packed, but considering how popular it was, I'd say it was fine.
Restaurants are plentiful in the area...pretty much anything you can imagine. Continental breakfast served at the hotel is adequate. If you like waffles, you can make your own tasty ones. A few generic cereals, breads, oatmeal and hard boiled eggs round out the choices.
All in all, we were happy. Suited our needs for a clean, comfortable place to spend the night.
